GSM usage SCOM2012

You will be aware that GSM for System Center Operations Manager 2012 SP1 is RTM.

This Blog details for the GSM release.

The article on the Blog site I have included reads wrong. “GSM is provided by Microsoft as a benefit of SA. If you have a system Center License, you can use GSM free of charge


So is it free or SA only? Whilst I know it was for SA only thought I would contact Microsoft for some clarity.

The following details the reply:

“GSM will be provided as a SA benefit, not as a purely ‘free’ service.

System Center Server MLs with active SA need to be assigned to all the servers associated with delivering the web-facing application / URL.  A simple example would be a 3-tier app (database, business logic, web); all tiers need Server MLs with SA, then GSM can be used against that web-facing app.

I will follow up with the content  owner to see if we can improve the web page clarity.”
